9781770411654: Navigating the Shadow World: The Unofficial Guide to Cassandra Clare's the Mortal Instruments

An insightful and clever companion to the urban fantasy phenomenon, now a Freeform TV series Shadowhunters

Navigating the Shadow Worldtakes readers deep into the rich universe of Cassandra Clare’s New York Times–bestselling Shadowhunter Chronicles. With intelligent but accessible explorations of each volume of the Mortal Instruments and Infernal Devices series, Liv Spencer delivers the next best thing to a Shadowhunter’s Codex with commentary on the books as well as the references to folklore, legends, and literature. Spencer also recounts Cassandra Clare’s journey, from journalist and fan fiction writer to superstar author; explores the cast and crew who brought the first book to life in the film The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones; and delves into the TMI fandom, a passionate community that is anything but mundane.

From the Clave to Chairman Meow, demon pox to dastardly ducks, Navigating the Shadow World is your very own insight rune.

From Publishers Weekly:

A breathlessly enthusiastic tour of Persian-American author Cassandra Clare's popular urban fantasy series, this work delves into the worlds of the Mortal Instruments books and of the upcoming movie. Presented for Clare's fans' delectation are synopses of the books, discussions of the significant factions in the books, as well as discussions of the mythological and other sources Clare draws on; also included are short but detailed biographies for the cast and crew of the movie. The work provides some biographical details, from Clare's days as a plagiarism scandal-plagued fan fiction scribe to best-selling author. Although intended for an existing fan-base, the work is not without its points of interest for people unfamiliar with Clare and her work; the decision to deal with the plagiarism scandal so directly in particular is a bold decision. That said, the book comes across less as a sincere work of affection by genuine fans or scholars of Clare's work and more as 240 pages of blatantly commercial product placement aimed at said fans, a prose trailer for the movie. That said, Spencer brings a slick competence to the effort; other authors of this sort of material would do well to emulate.
